DOA: Dead or Alive

Synopsis: A number of fighters are invited to DOA, an invitational martial arts contest. They travel to the tournament island by plane, until they have to jump out mid-flight with parachutes, and then have until sundown to reach the main island to be entered into the tournament. Fighters are then pooled against one another in a knock-out style tournament, with the loser of a battle sent home, and the winner progressing to the subsequent round. The plot revolves around four female fighters who begin as rivals, but subsequently find themselves teaming up against another force.

- Don't worry, Tina, he's beneath you.

- I sure would like to be.

- Son of a...

- Dad.


God, I cannot wait to kick his ass.

- Why do you follow me?

- I was invited to DOA.

- I promise not to harm you.

- Unless we meet in a match.

- Max.

- Oh, no.


Listen, I don't know

who you're pretending to be

or how you got yourself invited to DOA,


but what I do know is you left me alone

in my Hong Kong hotel room.

I would never leave

such a woman as you alone.

Especially not in a hotel room.

I'm winning the $10 million prize money.

And if I get to put your double-dealing arse

in the "D" column of "Dead or Alive",


so much the better.

Let me help you with that.

Hey, everybody.

I hope you're enjoying the flight.

My welcome gift to you is this.

To get to DOA Island

you have to bail out now.

Parachutes are under your seats.

Just aim for the Buddha on your left.

Have fun.

Oh, and one more thing.

Whoever doesn't make it to the compound

by sundown is disqualified.


Princess, allow me to go first.

Looks like we landed off target.

How in hell

are we supposed to get up there?

We'd better get going.

Well, you're both on your own.

I don't do teams.

That's fine with me. Any team you're part of

is bound to lose anyway.

Well, I'll remember that

when I'm collecting the $10 million.

Okay. Here goes.

Race you.

If we're going to make it,

we need to work together.





Oh, God, what are you doing down there?

Jesus, hurry up.

We've gotta go.

Thanks, guys.

Hey, what took you guys so long?

Who the hell is that?

Trust me, you don't want to know.

Welcome to DOA. Glad you made it.

I'm afraid you guys were the last to arrive.
